    LOL you have next to no chance with onboard.

    I can tell you even with new hardware you wont reap any rewards from a single GPU.

    If you want to earn from mining now you need to dedicate multiple equipment and time to it.

    If you want to earn from bitcoins then buy some and wait for the price to rise again , like they did recently. But of course the price may drop.

    Unless you have decent equipment and time then bitcoins are merely a currency and no real feasbile way to 'mine' them to any great amount.

    There are plenty of course online to get free ones including online mining which I leave running all the time and share the URl to friends who then mine for me at http://www.bitcoinplus.com/

    along with many more. I tend to make around 3 free whole bitcoins a month or so from scavenging and online mining in total which at the moment is around $99 so not really worth is though I dont put much effort into it.

    I've previously had a look at such pages, and unless you're cheating and use bots, you'll earn a lot more bitcoins from GPU mining with a single, cheap graphic adaptor, than scavenging.

    Otherwise I don't see how you are able to earn 3 whole bitcoins a month by "online mining & scavenging", unless you have hundreds of friends who have agreed to Java mine for you.

    Mining was viable if you were doing it early enough. These days you'd probably spend more on the extra electricity than you'd get back in bitcoins
